Giuseppe Zanotti marked a major milestone this evening: his 100th boutique — the newest at Shanghai’s swanky IFC Mall.
To celebrate, the designer held a private dinner party at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in Shanghai. Guests included some of China’s biggest fashion influencers, such as singer Jolin Tsai, street-style star and boutique owner Rigel Davis, model Danni Li and stylist Leaf Greener.
Zanotti already has two stores in Shanghai and many throughout China. The Italian designer recently expanded his New York Madison Avenue flagship store, which now spans 1,700 square feet. The store, opened in 2001, was the designer’s first U.S. store and second opening after his Milan flagship. He now has nine stores in the U.S.
Celebrities including Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj are fans of his designs. Rihanna is wearing custom Zanotti chap boots on her current Anti World Tour.
